work and hours of dedication to something great was met with a finished product. After taking a break and getting other disrupted affairs in order we finally took the time on a late Friday afternoon in mid-August to chat about the book, what it means to us, what it means to the Oracle BI community, and to those looking to learn more about Oracle Business Intelligence.

For those who have already purchased the book we thank you for your support.

This podcast is just one that we had to do because although the book was executed very well, there are so many behind the scenes efforts and personalities that clearly don’t shine through in a technical book. We hope you enjoy listening to a few blokes blabbering about BI.

Admittedly, I think this podcast starts off a bit slow, as I’ve gotten rusty having postponed podcast interviews during the writing off the book, but it picks up very quickly after the start for some hilarious banter, some tid-bits and other candid sentiments about the book writing process, things we wished we had put into the book but had to cut out, etc.

Listen to this podcast and you can tell that we had a bit of fun during the chat between Haroun, Adrian, and myself.

Remember, the community for the book can be found on  (The site is still getting updated so please bare with us on that one.)

As always throw out some feedback as we appreciate hearing from you.
